I hear people talk about Al Basha so much in this town and I’ve been once a long time ago, I figured it was time to go check it out again. I like the decor..I didn’t notice if they had a sit on the floor section with pillows and all though.
I like the ambiance of the place, although they could invest in more comfortable seats. The menu was decent. They have a good variety of meals and no Nigerian section (yayyyy) because authentic middle eastern restaurant should not have pounded yam abeg. Prices were ridiculous sha. Come prepared.
I finally settled on the Shish Tawouk (N4000) as I didn’t want the normal grilled chicken and rice and this one sounded “exotic” enough. I also got a glass of House White Wine (N1700).
Yea my lamb was delicious… Tender and so well seasoned. The rice was a bit salty but I still liked it because it had caramelized onions and vegetables.
So much for it not being basic. It was very blah. Normal fried rice (a bit too soft and soggy for my liking) and grilled chicken as far as I was concerned. The only difference was that the chicken was a chicken kebab removed from the stick and it was covered with pita bread. It didn’t blow me away, but it wasn’t bad either.
They don’t accept POS, so come with cash. I’d go back for some hummus and perhaps to try a lamb dish.
